Journey to Japan with Rick DaSilva
Thursday, February 27th at 6:30pm
A native of Marion, Rick has been teaching history at Tabor Academy for the passt decade after graduating in 1989. Since he’s been at Tabor, he’s taught Ancient and Modern World History courses as well as Asian History as an elective. Over the past 8 years, mostly through the support of Tabor, Rick has visited Asia a number of times with stops in China, Thailand, Cambodia, Tibet and most recently Japan. Rick’s experiences abroad have shaped the way he teaches as well as his perspective as a traveler of Asia. Rick’s hobby is photography and it’s through his images that he expresses his appreciation and interest in Asian history, culture and people.
Join us for this special talk where Rick will be sharing his experiences touring Japan this past summer. This trip, backed by the National Consortium for the Teaching about Asia (NCTA) and the Fulbright-Hays Group Study Abroad Program, sent Rick and eleven other educators from all over the country on a month long study tour. Rick will be speaking about his trip and its purpose, as well as his own personal stories through discussion and sharing his images.
